GREENCASTLE, Pa. - "Sweethearts of the Silver Screen," an exhibit showing a half-century of the great movie stars of Hollywood's golden age, will be on display Sunday through Thursday at the Allison-Antrim Museum.
The exhibit also features brief histories of local theaters in Greencastle and Waynesboro, Pa., said Bonnie A. Shockey, president of the museum at 365 S. Ridge Ave.
"During the last couple of years many of the truly great film stars of the golden age of movies have died," Shockey said in a press release announcing the exhibit. "It will be based on half a century of these great leading actresses and actors of the silver screen and will include biographies on many of the greatest stars of our time from the 1920s through the 1970s."
The exhibit will include lobby cards, articles about individual stars, movie scene stills, photographs including original studio shots, and a special display on early Academy Awards. The first Oscars were presented in the 1920s.
